How many Weddings/(insert desired shoots) have you shot and what inspired you to start working as a photographer? I can tell you that the first wedding I shot I had no clue what I was doing, granted I charged next to nothing for it and they were aware it was my first one and trusted me to do it! I used to look at amazing photos of couples and get the goosebumps because I could feel the emotions coming through the photos. I would always think to myself “I wish I could do that” but never knew where to start. I actually had two sets of people reach out to me and ask me to take their senior photos and engagement photos on my iPhone, I was shocked they would want me to do that. After those turned out pretty good I thought to myself jeez if I can do that on an iPhone imagine what a nice camera would do. And the rest is history.
What type of equipment do you shoot and edit on? I personally prefer Canon because the richness in color that comes out in the raw files. I edit using primarily Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
How do you ensure my photos are not lost due to card errors or software crashes? I shoot on a camera with dual card slots so that if for some reason a card fails it will be recorded to two cards. I also export your photos to two different external hard drives to make sure that if one dies they will still not be lost.
Do you have a backup camera? Cameras and equipment are expensive and so not everyone can afford to invest in more than one really nice camera. But it is important that your photographer have at least one more option in case heaven forbid something terrible happens like a malfunction, bad drop or theft.
Most importantly getting to know the photographer and making sure that you feel they have your best interest in mind. That they are knowledgeable in their field and in what your dream experience is.
